TEXT: HEBREWS 13:1-4
(1) Let brotherly love continue.
(2) Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
(3) Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.
(4) Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
KEY VERSE: 1 JOHN 4:8
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
In today's scripture text, the apostle wrote to the brethren teaching them practical love among the brethren. He said that brotherly love should continue. Recognize your sister and love her in Christ, recognize your brother and love him in Christ. Brotherly love should continue. Let's love one another, for love is of God. He that loves knows God. He that loves is born again indeed, because God is love and love is practical.
Now, he says be not forgetful to entertain strangers. That's part of love. Somebody you have not known may come up in the name of the Lord as a child of God. Extend love to that person; be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels without knowing it. Entertain people. Love people. Treat people well.
Remember them that are in bonds as bound with them. Those that are in prison, for no fault of theirs, maybe because of the gospel they are passing though persecution. Remember them and feel it with them. Feel it, as if you are the one passing through the persecution. Let it not be that one of the sisters is passing through persecution. Is the husband torturing her, because she refuses to wear ear rings, or perm her hair, or paint her body? Is she passing through trouble, because the husband has driven her out of the house and you don't bother? If a believer is passing through problems in the working place, or at home, feel with him. Remember them that are in bond. Be with them.
Again, remember them which suffer adversity as if you yourself also is in the body. Those that are passing through difficulty, feel it along with them. Sickness in their body, feel it with them. Suffer pains with them. That's Christian love! Again, Love moves with protection and defense. You will want to protect the person you love; you will want to defend the person you love. Now you see the attributes of love. You can add your own.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Let brotherly love continue.
